[bells ringing] inside the palazzo vecchio, the 5,000 or so florentines who had the right to vote would meet, summoned by the bell in times of crisis. they were the members of the influential guilds and represented craftsmen and the most economically important activities... sculptors and stoneworkers... textiles... metalworkers... masons and builders... lawyers and solicitors. the engine driving the art of florence at the beginning of the 15th century was competition between the guilds and competition between the artists commissioned by them. the armorers guild paid for this powerful, alert image of their patron saint, saint george, by donatello-- roman art transformed into a vision o

new plant. they will not take risks in an uncertain environment. host: the president delivered a speech calling for an increase in the minimum wage. says it makes more sense to invest in technology that would replace workers. guest: one of the classic arguments with minimum wage is it causes a transfer to more capital. others who have studied this it does not, partially because you need to look at who earns the minimum wage. you have a lot of folks in retail sectors, fast food restaurants. there is technology that could make a difference. but it is not the same thing as in manufacturing. most manufacturing workers e arn well above the minimum wage. it is unfortunate for families who lose their jobs to a machine that allows one worker to do the work of three. it is not necessarily because of minimum wage. host: you have stopped looking completely? caller: i just turned 60 years old. i have been looking for a position for about a year and a half. i do ecological research. i have been a university professor working with the federal government doing research. iwas employed for 10 yea
